Read // Watched // Listened // Savored: October & November Edition

It's been a few months since I did one of these posts (six, to be exact). It's hard to believe it's already December! October was filled with birthday celebrations, including a weekend trip to the Great Sand Dunes (pictured above) and Santa Fe, while November passed in a blur of holiday preparations.

All of the books! I've been taking advantage of the winter weather and shorter days to spend more time cozied up on the couch (or bathtub) with my Kindle. I read about 20 books these past few months. Favorites included: BigLaw // Big Magic // The Underwriting // Fates and Furies // A Window Opens

Roots, Wings & Wanderings' wonderful Portland-made gift guides: His & Hers

12 Adorable Tiny Houses You Can Rent. I'm eying that one in Jackson Hole for our vacation next summer.

This recipe for Chamomile & Turmeric Evening Tea. #musttry

Watched & Listened
This Words of Wilderness video. It includes several of the quotes that inspired the name of this blog!

This interesting interview with organization psychologist Adam Grant about the concept of generosity in the workplace.

In a definite departure from my usual podcast style, Hunt the Truth, a fictional investigative podcast set in the universe of HALO (and narrated by the fantastic Keegan-Michael Key). Given my typical preference for non-fiction audio content and total lack of interest in HALO, I was shocked by how entertaining I found it.

Jessica Jones. I just started watching. So far, it's seriously addictive.


Hatha Yoga classes at Little Yoga Studio.

The crazy-beautiful sunrises that seem to occur more often this time of year.

White Bean & Ham Hock Soup (I skipped the bay leaves and added sage.)

Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs

Yogurt Breakfast Bowl with Toasted Coconut, Walnuts, Blueberries and Chia (I subbed toasted almonds for the walnuts)

Spiced Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Egg Skillet

Ground beef lettuce wraps: local ground beef sautéed with onion, garlic, and tamari, wrapped in Bibb lettuce leaves and topped with scallions, cilantro, avocado, and Sriracha mayo.

What did you read, watch, listen to, and savor this month?
